    This is a very nice basic 12" Sharpening Stone. Great for residential uses. It is not the fanciest, but you get more than what you pay for.

    I wasn't expecting too much from this sharpening stone since it's so cheap, but it's fine as a basic sharpening stone. Will help keep your knives sharp if you don't have any other sharpening stones.

    It is high quality and serves me well. It is very convenient and easy to use. I am pleased that I bought it. It definitely lasts for a long time!

    I'd like to address 2 common complaints in reviews about this Sharpening Stone 1. Its a rough grit stone. That is correct, it is a 120 and 240 Combo stone. This is not for daily/weekly/monthly use, but for knives who need some serious work as it will remove a lot of metal. 2. Chipping or Broken stone - This is not really the fault of the product but due to shipping conditions. Webstaurantstore staff are very quick to resolve these types of issues and they are great for reaching out to customers post review. The price is really good for a stone. I don't think I've ever seen it priced so low anywhere else. The company that makes it is Update International. They make commercial products that are fairly decent to outstanding. My only gripe, is that if it were not for the description there is no way of knowing besides feel (they both feel the same to me) what the grit is. To combat this, I used a pencil to write the grit on the sides of the stone. Pencil markings will stay on for a long time when submerged in water. An alternative is using a lacquer or similar paint to write the grit.

    This 12 inch sharpening stone is pretty decent a pretty good price it does it stop you definitely need to get some of the mineral stone to use on it to make a better sharpen on your knife

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    This is the perfect stone for getting out big chips in my knives and taking plenty of metal quickly. The size is perfect for making sharpening a quick and easy task.

    This is a great sharpening stone at a great price. Prior to this, we used a budget grade diamond sharpening stone which left our blades looking rough and removed far too much material when we used it. Switching to this wet stone system has been a long time coming. This sharpener is quite large which gives you plenty of surface area to work with and, once you get he hang of it, leaves knives extremely sharp without removing too much material.

    cant beat the price, it worked well to sharpen. Definitely need some practice to get the right angle down, but it definitely shreds the side to give a nice new edge

    12" Sharpening Stone every good cook has a draw case box bucket of knives who have long gone dull... If you love those old knives and want to bring them out of retirement then buy this

    This is a high quality commercial grade sharpening stone which will last for years even in a commercial setting. Perfect size for handling. Incredible value for the price.

    This 12" sharpening stone is a little bulkier than I anticipated but has sharpened our dull knives rather well and is well worth the price.

    from Patricia S Posted on

    This is a super rough stone. I would not subject any of my blades to this, maybe my lawnmower. Skip this stone go for something better unless you're chopping wood.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    Well, one of these arrived broken, but they did replace it no problem. Honestly, it is just a little too bulky to be convenient for me and I might not have the skills to use it correctly. it is a great price, so if you have the skills and storage space it would probably be a good buy.

    from B-Sting's Snacks & Things Posted on

    Thanks for the review, Brenna! We were happy to help in making sure you received a replacement for the one that arrived broken. We hope the sharpening stone works well for you in the future!

    These stones keep your knives sharp. With a steel and a stone, you can keep your knives going for a long time. The stones wear out so a good price is a plus!

    from It Takes Two LLC T/A Dino's Grotto Posted on

    A good basic sharpening stone. 120/240 grit which is rather low but this stone will do a good job getting your knives back into basic condition. A higher grit 1000+ stone can do the final steps better but would take much longer to get the blade to the sharp.

    For the price, you get a quality stone. Hard to beat. Gotta learn to use it and be sure to soak it before use. Brings life to old knives. Good on double amd single edge knives.

    Good heavy sharping stone, the only thing that would of made this a outstanding buy would be a sample oil to come with it. I will have to buy new oil.

    Posted on

    Great for larger knives such as scimitars, 12" and longer chef knives, slicing knives, etc. where you have a longer blade that needs more stone contact than a regular size one can give. Different grits on each side. Produces great edge.

    from Chef Stef Posted on

    works great for me using this sharpening stone combination its really help to sharpen my kinfe mostly when im on working area and on my kitchen i but more for my staff

    from ashlexdrei tradings /sweets by chef jhay Posted on

    great sharpening stone. although it didnt come with instructions so i dont know which side to work first. i figure start with the darker side and finish with the lighter side. Leaves my knives very sharp. I sharpen my knives once a week.

    from La Trattoria Posted on

    A good cheap sharpening stone to have to keep all you knifes sharp. The item did come in with some chips on the corners but since it is such a big stone not a big deal, but it was tech broken and don't know how long it will last since it is already chipping.

    My sharpest kitchen knife can now slice through bone with little effort after using this awesome stone Love it for home and work all my co worker love it to it the best.

    from Wes & Nita Posted on

    This stone does a great job of putting a sharp edge on my knives. I even trust it for my expensive german knives. The price is actually misleading, because the value far exceeds the sticker price. My only gripe is that the two sides aren't labeled - but that's just a matter of feeling them.

    Posted on

    This is definitely a great sharpening stone. I wanted the longer size for dealing with knives greater than 12' in length. Having the two sides at different grits makes it easy to transform older dull knives into something that cuts like it was brand new again. I need to get a smaller size one for my tackle box!

    As a culinary student I use my knives everyday and cut a lot of dense items, which means a lot of wear on my knives. This stone i used once and it keep my knives as sharp as they were when they first came out of the box, the stone is also very large and should last me a while.

    Posted on

    EXTREMELY coarse, with a nice large size. Great stone for first-step sharpening on any seriously abused knives, it quickly blasts out chips and also works if you plan on changing a blade's grind profile. Also a good stone for lawnmowers, axes, and other heavy-duty jobs.

    This is a large, solid, heavy sharpening stone, it was larger than I was expecting. It's got different grits on each side and looks like it'll last forever.

    from Home Posted on

    My sharpest kitchen knife can now slice through bone with little effort after using this awesome stone. Soaking it in water was part of the trick.

    the stone is big but sharpens knife fast and good. shipping itself is not as bad as other places where one may checked out. I know I have many years of enjoying this tool for use in my kitchen. this tool lasts for generations.

    I used this 12" sharpening stone recently on my 8" chef's knife and it worked like a charm. It's important to make sure the stone is well soaked before you start sharpening and to make sure the stone stays wet and lubricated during sharpening. I don't like how the grit isn't labeled on the stone but it's fairly obvious which side is finer. This gets the job done and was affordable.

    from Manchester Court Posted on

    This is a great valued product for the price. I used it with the Norton Mineral Oil. I would definitely buy again, if i had the need.

    It's a good sharpening stone and is easy to use once you learn how to use it. It's at an affordable price. Only con is it does crack, but it is a minor issue.

    from Asian Homestyle Cooking Posted on

    Thank you for your review! This sharpening stone is a great value. Make sure to only wet the surface of the stone as fully submersing the stone in water can cause cracking. Please feel free to contact a Customer Solutions Representative if you have an questions or concerns about a purchase.

    The 12" Sharpening Stone is great. It is super affordable and gets the job done. It does become uneven quickly, but it is affordable enough to deal with having to maintain the stone a little bit.

    My grandfather owned one of these and taught me how to use many years ago. Along with my box knife sharpener, I love having a sharpening stone on hand. They work great and there is a certain peace in using one.
